Time for voter suppression trials

Now that some Republicans have confessed that the real purpose of Florida voter suppression was to disenfranchise voters in order to change the outcome of an election, it's time to arrest and prosecute some of the offenders.

That's a bit too conservative. The purpose of voter suppression is to steal an election.

Let's see how well their excuses hold up in court with a jury of their peers (the people whose votes they were trying to suppress).

I've had it with the government looking the other way on political crimes. We have a free system that guarantees every citizen a vote. Screwing with the election is a serious crime.

Update: Thanks to Betsy Devine for suggesting a petition. Please sign it! Now, before you forget. :-)
